"Are antidepressants dangerous for my son?"

There is a lot of debate regarding medication, especially when it comes to children and teens. This week’s Tips On Teens question comes from a parent worried about anti-depressents. What do you think? Here’s the question:

"My son’s pediatrician has been pushing the idea of anti-depressents lately. I’m skeptical because I’ve heard horror stories from other parents. Isn’t there a pretty big risk of suicide while using anti-depressents? Is there a specific one that is safer than others? I don’t want to put my son in any danger."
